Good Afternoon fellow readers. So anyone that has ever followed a diet or a lifestyle change has eating has became aware of the negativity within the media. This is a tactic used by many companies to convince you that what you are following is bad for you. Generally most of this articles don’t have a proper study to support their claim and many of the times they are written by PR firms to help boost pharmaceutical and diet industries markets.
So I personally take most of the articles with a grain of salt and most of the time I don’t even read them. Many of them are simply click bait and are using your view to boost their cause. So every time you share one of these it also boosts their cause. So unless I see something from a really reliable source I don’t waste my time. That doesn’t mean I am not aware and believe me I have friends that send them to me as well. Most of them in all honesty give me a good laugh. The sad part is not everyone has this mentality and when they see something from a news source they automatically think it has to be true. In turn those people will bail and leave this way of eating before they ever get a chance to see the true benefits it can bring.
In the last two weeks I have learned that after being on the Keto diet for over 10 months I should be suffering from one if not all the following: keto crotch, worms, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, advanced cardio vascular disease, poor nutrition due to un-sustainability, kidney problems, etc. etc. etc. I could keep going with this list for days and days. So what is the solution according to media? I should just eat carbs. So a slice of bread is going to save me from all the above. Now think about that for one minute! If carbs were the cure to all these bad things, then we wouldn’t need doctors because we wouldn’t need their big pharma to control our blood pressure and cholesterol, etc. You would simply eat bread and be cured of everything. So you can see that these all start to align more and more with someone just pushing you towards something that they can cure with a pill or a diet plan they want to charge you an arm and a leg for.
Well I may only be one person, but this is my experience with the low carb lifestyle. In the last 10 months I have had: better sleep, less inflammation, weight loss, better mood, no more stomach medications or reflux, decreased heart rate, better blood pressure, clearer skin, increased energy, better dental hygiene, increased libido, and that is just to name a few. Looks like to me I seem to be doing just fine and my doctor would agree also! I’m in better health right now than I have been since I was a child. I feel ten years younger and like a ball of fire.
I’m not into keto to make myself or anyone else millions. I am simply into it because it has changed my life and my health and I’m passionate about it. Every diet or lifestyle you choose had some inherent risk associated with it. That is why it is important to understand what your doing and work with your doctor to ensure you are getting what you need. You can be genetically predisposed to certain conditions no matter your diet. You can’t be afraid to ask questions and do your research to see what works for you! We are all different so there is no one answer. It just is so sad that media is trashing people and their way of eating in order to make bigger companies more money and by doing so putting many lives at risk. So keep bringing the negative articles and I will keep ignoring them and sharing my positive experiences to counter them, and until next time Keep Ketoing On!
